I was on a business trip with some extra time at the end. I wanted to arrange a couple of days of self guided cycling with a chance to visit friends in the Cotswolds. Jamie and his crew arranged accommodation, a bike and maps. They proved wonderfully reliable and everything was in place. The bike was immaculate, the routes well chosen, and I had two days of carefree riding. They offer a perfect service, and I recommend them highly.
